*Women in Red *

During the month of January, the Wiki Project Women in Red ran an editing
campaign to focus on writing and improving articles about women from Great
Britain and Ireland. A number of Irish women were written about
including Nicola
Gordon Bowe <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nicola_Gordon_Bowe> and Irene
Gilbert <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Irene_Gilbert_(fashion_designer)>.
You can see the results of the month long event here
<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:WikiProject_Women_in_Red/Meetup/66>.
Given that it is 100 years since women's suffrage in Ireland and the UK,
we're hoping this is a start to an important year for women's history on
Wikipedia!
